Edmond Memorial High School is a public secondary school located in Edmond, Oklahoma, one of three high schools in the Edmond school district. It serves approximately 2,200 students.[3]

History

The school was originally named Edmond High School because it was the only secondary school within the city limits. The first class graduated in 1922, and consisted of 24 students.[4] As Edmond grew, the school changed location several times, moving to its current location on 15th Street in the mid-1960s. The current building was built in 1966 as a seventh grade only school. It opened to its first class of seventh graders the second semester of the 66-67 school year. At that point, Edmond High School was located at the corner of Ninth Street and Rankin. It housed all sophomores, juniors and seniors in Edmond. That building is now called Central Middle School and houses sixth, seventh and eighth graders from several elementary schools on the east side of Edmond. Also, it has lost its original, distinctive E shape due to new additions.

In 1975, the name of the school was changed to Edmond Memorial High School to honor six alumni who were killed while serving in Vietnam: Floyd Frazier, Jr., Allen Garrett, James Johnson, James Leonard, Danny Shores, and John Wilson.[4] Because of its rapidly increasing size, in 1994 the school split into three, now rival schools, including Edmond North High School and Edmond Santa Fe High School.[4]

In the past decade, Memorial has undergone a wave of new construction projects, including an expanded library, new parking lots, a new football locker room/pom and cheer practice facility, and a new freshmen academy. The auditorium has also been renovated.

Statistics

For the 2016–2017 school year, the school had an enrollment of 2,220 students and 98.8 classroom teachers. The graduation rate for the class of 2017 was 98.9% percent.[1] Memorial has over twenty teachers certified by the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards, who teach in every academic department.

Awards and recognition

Memorial received the Department of Education Blue Ribbon School Award of Excellence in 2001–2002 school year,[5] one of the highest honors an American high school can achieve. In 2008 Edmond Memorial was named the Siemens Foundation award winner for the state of Oklahoma for its consistently high Advanced Placement test scores in science, math and technology.[6] The senior class of 2007 received more than $11  million in scholarship offers, and 60 percent of the class took AP classes.[7]

Swine Week

Established in 1986, Swine Week is a week-long community service project at Edmond Memorial. Over the years, it has raised net total of over $5 million for various charitable organizations. The 2008 Swine Week theme was Viva Hog Vegas, and it raised over $265,000 for the Oklahoma Family Center for Autism.[8] The 2009 theme was Pigelodeon, and it raised almost $319,000 for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.[9] The 2010 theme was "Piggie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory", and it raised a record-breaking $527,704.88 for the Jimmy Everest Children's Cancer Center at the University of Oklahoma Health Science Center. The 2011 theme was "Hoggy Potter", and it raised almost $463,000 for the Oklahoma Children's Heart Disease Center. The 2012 theme was "Pigsney World", and it raised $475,000 for Oklahoma Project Woman.[10] The 2013 theme was "Star Boars", and it raised about $353,000 for Limbs For Life Foundation. In Edmond Memorial's 2015 Swine Week campaign, entitled, "Pigtendo," they raised $701,334 for Angel's Foster Family Network in Oklahoma making it the largest grossing year yet.[11]
